Ron Reagan Rises Up Against the Crazycons!

Reported by Melanie - June 23, 2004 -

Ronald Reagan, Jr. was a guest tonight in the second half of Larry King Live (CNN. 9:00 p.m. ET). Toward the end of King's interview, a caller asked whether Ron Reagan thought today's Republican party was the same Republican party of Ron's "dad's day." Ron answered:

It's a "much meaner party today. It's been co-opted by the religious right."

COMMENT: Ron Reagan said several poignant and relevant things worth hearing. Hopefully a transcript will appear online at CNN in the next 24 hours. Go to cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/ to check.

I find this interview (and others Ron Reagan's done) fascinating because, just two weeks ago, the RNC was counting on dragging President Reagan into the upcoming election such that they'd figured Bush would assume his likeness. They didn't notice that life has moved on, times have changed, and new voices are speaking. As usual, the RNC hasn't realized that they're the ones who're running to catch up, not vice versa.
